Three Tips for Business Success

by Rahimah Sultan

When I was nine years old my goal was to become a doctor. That meant graduating from high school and attending college. I had to formulate a plan that would enable me to achieve this.

In elementary school things were already decided for you as far as course selection. In junior high, now called middle school, you had a more flexible curriculum depending on the path you wanted to follow. It was then that the thought of becoming a doctor solidified for me, and I used counselors’ recommendations and my own research to determine the classes I needed and when to take them.

I hope the following three tips for business success are of use to you as an entrepreneur as you plan and pursue your vision.

1. Keep focused on the main goal

Have a clear vision of your main goal. Although you may veer off course from time to time, your big vision is always the focus. Sometimes challenges arise and plans must be changed. Remaining focused on your ultimate goal will enable you to make the needed changes to keep you moving forward.

2. Persevere

Sometimes you will face uneasiness and fear of the next steps to take. You will need perseverance to keep moving forward and to stay on track. While in school I faced a lot of major challenges and had to delay my college education. I held on to my vision and eventually circumstances were such that I could attend college. That was much later in my adult life and I focused on “plan B” and received my college degree. Although I did not become a doctor, I pursued something I was truly passionate about. You will also need passion to succeed.

3. Be flexible

You need to formulate a basic plan that allows for changes. Sometimes large changes to the plan will be necessary. You also need a marketing outline for promoting your business. Decide which avenues and platforms you will use and what your budget will look like.

These are Three Tips for Business Success to consider if you are an entrepreneur or plan to be one and have decided the path you want to follow.
